Mr. Heater hose assembly. Need Teflon tape?

5 posts in this topic

Hey quys got a quick question for ya. I just purchased the hose to hook my Mr. Heater/Cooker to a 11lb LP tank. I was planning on just tightening both ends on and be done with it. My buddy says I need to put teflon tape on connections. I looked in at the packaging the hose came in and could not find anything about teflon tape. I always thought since the 1lb tank just screws on the hose would be the same way. Also wouldn't the LP breakdown the teflon tape anyways creating more problems? Did you guys use teflon tape?

Thanks in advance. I don't want my FT Yukon to turn into a propane fueled spud gun with ME being the spud tomorrow on the ice:)!!!!

I have never used Teflon tape on any of the propane fittings I have screwed together. Now is this right, I do not know, but i have never had a leak issue yet in 20 years of putting togther Mr. heater stuff and other propane stuff.

Good luck..

Only if you've stripped the threads...which in most cases I avoid using them.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
